2-Foot, 3-Bag Juggling

Post by Jorden » 24 Apr 2008 09:59

Sent this as a PM to someone.
Thought I might as well share it.

Tips for Juggling 3 Bags

- flex your ankles up so your foot and leg form a 90 degree angle (roughly)
- keep both ankles flexed like this the entire time you are juggling
- raise the foot as if you are riding a really tall bicycle backwards
- lower the foot as if you are riding a really tall bicycle forwards
- always plant HEEL first
- slow the lowering of the foot before you plant so the bag doesn't bounce off
- TOE WALLS are a must!
- when setting each bag, try to give it a FRONT SPIN
- set each bag up and with a slight arc rather than too much diagonal direction
- practice with bigger bags that fill more of your toe box
- don't lean forward too much
- set about neck/head height
- lift the knee as soon as possible so you can control where you'll set the bag

Good luck.

I did my first juggling yesterday, 4 contacts ! :D .
I just have one little question. When I juggle the 3 bags I seem to leave my feet out of sight and I do blind toe stalls.
Should i try to lower my sight or it is good like in hand juggling, when you look at the spot where you want the ball to end?
thanks
Dimitrov.

Lean forwards slightly when you lift your foot so you can see the bag on your foot.

Always follow the airborne ball.

I've been watching a LOT of routines on youtube lately, and I'm kind of getting sick of seeing the whole two bag juggle thing in the middle of the routine. I mean, it's not like it's not hard, but it's just becoming too overdone, and it's not being very creative. It'd be awesome to see someone juggle three bags in a routine, even if they mess up.

Pete Irish did this in routine finals at Worlds 2005. Very cool.

I remember asking Bevier for advice on this, and he said:

This has so far been the most helpful tip for me.

I totally agree, except I do two bag in my routines anyway because the non-footbag audience really loves it, not so many people do it in Australian comps, and it's a good breather.

Regarding 3 bag juggling, I am very average at this, but can get a few contacts and the two things that helped me most was really schooling flipside 2 bag juggling and 2 bag 2 feet (columns I guess) juggling. This probably goes without saying. Oh, also I have no toe walls on my shoes, but I don't feel like it makes any difference at all. My mistakes are always with the sets, not catching the bag.

I would love to get juggling down better but my sciatica kills me on my planting leg. Ever since I got the hang of it in the first place it's been bothering me (about 4 months). Something about that motion my left cheek is not liking..
